Playa Events--Published online?

Post by Mother Fire Nymph » Fri Aug 11, 2017 11:46 am

I have been looking for the feature "Playa Events" which has been available to browse online over the years. It's a more comprehensive schedule than the WhatWhenWhere printed schedule. Is it up? Thanks for the help.

You may have to create an account. Many people extract it and put it into apps and spreadsheets.

I'm giving this a nudge over to the Q&A board, since that's a better fit. Yeah, the same site where people go to enter their events is also the place you go to browse the listings.

It's also worth noting that if you grab one of the various smartphone apps for iOS/Android, they will contain a big data dump from that as well. Basically they get a big data dump a week or so prior to the gates opening, and make it available as an app update that you can download and have on your device (no need for a cell signal to access).

Where the printed What/Where/When guide typically contains less than 5% of the listings, the apps contain more than 95% of the listings that participants have added.

Both Time To Burn and iBurn have issued their 2017 updates. Check your app stores and grab your updates!

Many thanks to the creators of these fine applications, and the tech team for doing all the API stuff and geeky things to help make that happen.

Also, the entire list in spreadsheet form: https://www.justin-klein.com/playaevent ... -exporter/

(plus art installations & camp locations - which aren't on the PlayaEvents page)
